The Combined Honours programme offers you an opportunity to study two subjects at degree level, enabling you to benefit from high quality teaching across more than one subject.
No matter where you work, there will be underlying principles of business in operation. A degree in business provides a solid foundation to build your career on. One of the most popular subjects, studying business at Manchester Met will equip you with the necessary skills to set up your own company, or build a management career in an existing organisation. Business professionals are generally good at leading teams; have sound commercial awareness; are adept at spotting enterprising opportunities; can manage projects and are excellent problem solvers. There are opportunities to participate in business and enterprise competitions, receive support and advice from mentors from our Innospace graduate incubator and business start-up unit, and to network with successful entrepreneurs and consultants who contribute as guest lecturers and placement employers.
Proficiency in modern languages will give you the competitive edge in the global jobs market. In both the private and public sectors, there is demand for professionals with strong language skills who can work in culturally diverse environments. Studying French at Manchester Met will give you the opportunity to learn from native speakers. Our languages department have created their own multi-cultural community, including British, exchange and international students, along with foreign language assistants, allowing you to be absorbed into the everyday use of your chosen language.
We have been providing professional language courses for more than 30 years and our staff are nationally, and in many cases internationally, recognised experts in their field. Our strong local, national and global links will help to enhance your study and future employment opportunities.
If you take French as a major or equal subject you will be required to spend your third year abroad in France. If French is your minor subject, the course will be three years with no study abroad.
